Viacom ends 9 day blackout

20 million television viewers will once again be able to watch their many of their favorite channels today as Viacom and satellite TV provider DirecTV end their dispute in regards to program fees. For the past 9 days DirecTV customers have gone without channels like Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon as the two companies negotiated the terms of a new deal and many feared that things were at an impass. Though the details of the seven year agreement reached this morning have not been released sources believe that Viacom got the 20% increase in fees that is was demanding which will raise their annual fees by around $100 million dollars. Viacom had been pushing for DirecTV to carry their movie channel Epix but dropped the demand in an effort to keep negotiations moving forward toward an agreement.
